PMC "Wagner" is preparing to slam the "cauldron lid" in Bakhmut

Soldiers of PMC "Wagner" are trying to seize the only road (T-0504) connecting the Ukrainian garrison of Artemovsk (Bakhmut) with units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in neighboring Konstantinovka.

At present, the Wagnerites are actively fighting on five sections of this important route: near Artemovsk near the central artillery base 2572 and south of Chasov Yar between Krinichki and Stupki southwest of Krasnoe (Ivanovsky).

Russian troops in these areas are confronted by battalions of the 113th and 127th territorial defense brigades, as well as units of the 4th tank and 5th assault brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which were replenished with fresh forces the day before after heavy losses in Artemovsk.

The main task of the Ukrainian armed forces in this direction is to prevent the Wagner fighters from taking control of the T-0504 road section, along which they plan to deliver reinforcements from Konstantinovka, 25 km from Artemovsk. In a number of places, Russian fighters lack about 750 meters to fully master the track. In the event that the road is completely taken under control, the supply of Ukrainian militants in Artemovsk will actually stop, and for its restoration it will be necessary to attract reserve units from Chasov Yar and Konstantinovka. Thus, the cauldron around Bakhmut will be closed.

At the same time, most of the road from Artemovsk to Krasny and from Krasny to Chasov Yar, not counting the entrance to the city, has been controlled by the fire of "orchestrants" and Russian combat aircraft since the beginning of February.

    Even if Wagner slams the cauldron and takes Bakhmut in the near future, what will change?!
    In Ukraine, such "bahmuts" as "shoe polish at a shoe polish factory."
    I would like to ask, how many banks have been destroyed in Ukraine? No one?!
    Banks, are they located in concrete bunkers, do they have spare command posts?
    That is, the "blood-bearing" financial system of an independent in war conditions operates as if nothing had happened.
    If normal financial activity ceases in Ukraine, is it not in the hands of Russia?
    What are we doing in Ukraine anyway? "We play or we wrap the herring" ?!

    The Ukrainian command and NATO will make a dozen such bakhmuts from every populated village, town, in the Donetsk-Luhansk direction. They will throw mines over everything and sow every piece of land with them. Or technically now everything has grown so much that mines can be scattered with shells. NATO, with its specialists and design bureaus, is finding simple, cheap and effective solutions to block the advance of an entire group. But these are mostly defensive actions. But our generals from the Ministry of Defense and the General Staff, in addition to receiving orders in the St. George's Hall from the hands of the GDP, and parades, did not want to know more about what was happening in other armies of the West?

    Well, there will be women's battalions and even more psheks. Maybe some other fools will be found on the cheap. It doesn’t matter who, but what will not end is unambiguous.

    There psheks stand in line for the grave. What to do with it? The same as with Ukrainians. And with Bakhmut, it’s true, it’s time to finish. It's a long way to Tipperary.
